EKU Piano Day


Dear KMTA Members, ​

EKU is proud to announce its 4th Piano Day.

February 17th will be a day dedicated to piano music and teaching.

This year, the EKU Piano day will have a different and exciting format: Students will play for comments, but the comments will be given in as mini Master Classes! Each student will have a  5-10 minutes lesson immediately after their performance.

Students will play in the morning starting at 9:00 am. The final recital showcasing students’ best pieces will take place at 2:00pm in the Closing Recital.

Please use this form to register your students. REGISTRATION IS FREE!!

Please send your registrations (and questions) to:
